Beverley Town Council has thanked everyone involved after winning Silver Gilt at the RHS Britain in Bloom Final.
Held in Belfast, this was the first appearance in the competition for the town. Furthermore, to get a Silver Gilt was quite an achievement. Also, this result is a testament to the efforts of countless volunteers.
Walter Sweeney has warmly endorsed a campaign that aims to keep Beverley looking good. Launched by Beverley’s Mayor Cllr. Bryan Pearson, Mr Sweeny is fully behind the project to reduce litter in the town.
Mr Sweeney, who will be replacing the veteran politician in the upcoming local elections under the Conservative banner. Consequently, he is calling for residents to take more responsibility, and keep Beverley tidy.
When Beverley Town Council organised the first Food Festival in 2006, little did they know it would go on to be an annual success enjoyed by thousands of residents and visitors alike.
The original idea was to bring a few producers from Beverley’s rural hinterland into the town centre to help celebrate local food, so on a crisp Sunday morning in 2006, thirty-five producers set up their stalls along with a small Food Theatre, in what proved to be a big success for the Town Council – one that has grown stronger year on year.
Having been inspired by the efforts of the Beverley in Bloom Group who drew in all parts of the community, to make the town a better environment in which to live, and being a finalist in the Britain in Bloom campaign, it was felt that Beverley Town Council should try and carry on the momentum and revive the Brighter Beverley Group.
